  • Judiciary in Burlington County Seeks Guardianship Monitoring Volunteers

    Volunteers in Burlington County are needed to help ensure that incapacitated adults under court-authorized guardianships are treated with dignity and respect. Volunteers for the Judiciary’s Guardianship Monitoring Program (GMP) are vital to achieving both court oversight and protection of incapacitated adults, while also assisting guardians in their sometimes difficult role.

    Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner announced the program in January 2013, saying, "We need a host of volunteers to help ensure that individuals who cannot take care of themselves are not taken advantage of by others. Please step forward to help us achieve that noble aim."

    Volunteers will spend six to12 hours a month working in the county surrogate’s office during business hours. Volunteers will help establish a statewide guardianship system and review documents from guardians regarding the physical and/or financial well-being of the adult deemed incapacitated by the court.

    All volunteers must be comfortable using computers and should have some experience and/or interest in reading and understanding legal and/or financial documents. Individuals who are able to focus and capture pertinent details of filings and integrate these into the court software; or people with a background or experience in accounting, budgeting, finance, or other related areas are encouraged to apply. Training is provided for all volunteers.

    All GMP volunteers must be 18 years of age or older, and must agree to comply with the Code of Conduct for Judiciary Volunteers. They are asked to commit to serve for at least one year. Candidates will be interviewed for details about their experience and background. Selected candidates will be fingerprinted and must satisfactorily pass a criminal history background check.

    Interested candidates can access the volunteer application at www.njcourts.com/guardianship. The completed application should be submitted to the address listed for the appropriate county www.njcourts.com/volunteer.

    Questions can be sent to njguardianship.mailbox@judiciary.state.nj.us.

  • Burlington County College "LIFE: Learning Is For Everyone" Needs Volunteer Instructors

    Burlington County College (BCC) sponsors a very successful program called "LIFE: Learning Is For Everyone" geared to the adult community, 50 years or older, that knows that learning can be a lifelong adventure. For over 25 years, LIFE has offered popular and well-attended classes of all kinds, from seminars, discussions and lectures, to hands-on computer, craft and gardening instruction, from fitness classes to nutrition management to walking tours, museum trips, concerts, theater performances, etc., throughout the region.

    BCC LIFE is looking to expand its course offerings for the SPRING15 semester, and hopes to find volunteer instructors or facilitators willing to conduct classes anytime during the week, in the evenings and on weekends.

    As a college instructor myself, I know that my colleagues are always discovering new data or research in their fields, or are involved in some activity outside of their discipline that they'd love to share with others. LIFE is the perfect opportunity to do just that.

    Typically, classes are taught at the Pemberton and Mount Laurel campuses, at the Burlington County Library in Westampton, as well as in Willingboro and Mount Holly. Classes can usually be arranged to suit your schedule dependent on availability of suitable instructional space. It can be just one session, a series or a full semester of classes.

    The possibilities are endless:

    • lead a discussion group or seminar course on books, movies, music, history, science, etc.
    • organize day trips to museums, concerts, interesting New Jersey sites, etc.
    • lead game or activity participation sessions: card or tile games, brain fitness, walking groups, craft instruction, gardening, aquatic fitness, nutrition and meal planning sessions, financial planning, retirement planning, etc.

    Contact the LIFE office at 609.894.9311 X1499, for more info, or send in the attached proposal. Please submit the enclosed course proposal for the Spring 15 semester by October 3. I have included the Fall LIFE Course Brochure so you can see what kind of courses we have offered.

    We want to continue to create a vibrant and active community of adult learners through course schedules that reflect the interests of our community here in South Jersey. Becoming a LIFE instructor is a great way for you to enrich the lives of adult learners and our community.

    Best regards.
